We are taking a South American cruise on the Mariner of the Seas next
Jan'09. I contacted Care Vacations (www.cruiseshipassist.com) a company
out of Alberta, Canada. Tel. 1-877-478-7827. We may be leaving from
FLL or Rio and was told that the wheelchair would be delivered to the
ship regardless of where we depart from. Also, at the end in Valpariso -
we just leave it on the ship. (Probably, will travel back on the ship when
it finally docks in California). The cost for a motorized scooter is $ 595
and $ 395 for a collapsible wheelchair - price is good for the duration
of your trip. I was told that the prices quoted to me would be honored when I make the actual reservation. However, prices may go up so if
you need this service, I would think the earlier you call and talk to them,
the more reasonable the cost. They will start a "file" on you even though
you have not made any definate plans. They also have a lot more equipment available. Sounds like a really good option - hope it turns out
that way.
